Let me be blunt. I modified this recipe from here.
But without the modifications, it’s a bit bland.
And the modifications work. And by work I mean WEEEERK.
If you’re a single lady, this recipe will make men love you. And if you’re a single guy, it will also make men love you. So I hope if you’re a dude that you’re gay or at least open to exploration.
OK so go to that link. Put those exact things in the slow cooker, and then add the following:
- SALT! I don’t like salt, but without any salt at all this recipe is bland
- 1/8 cup of brown sugar, I added it a few hours into the slow cooking process
- A few table spoons of balsamic vinaigrette! Also added late in the slow cooking process. This is the secret key!! Oh my goodness.
Also. The recipe says slow cook for 2 hours. I don’t think that’s nearly enough to get the full flavor.
I slow cooked on high for 4ish hours. I turned it to low towards the end.
You get bonus points from a higher power if you serve this chili on top of mixed greens with an egg on top. If you’re feeling naughty, a dollop of sour cream won’t hurt.
ALERT!!! Burrito Potential alert!:
I try to avoid carbs. But if you’re feeling feisty, add one egg, some mixed greens, some avocado and/or tomato. Throw it all together in a wrap to make the world’s most wonderful burrito. You won’t be disappointed.
STAY WARM! And Happppppppppy Chili Nomming 😀
